Mintek has developed the cynoprobe which offers the functionality to measure both ?free? and weak acid dissociable (WAD)
cyanide concentration of up to two independent streams. The real-time WAD cyanide measurement can minimize the risk
of toxicity to bird, animal and human life, and be used to control and optimize the cyanide destruction and recovery process. The
instrument is capable of measuring a very wide range of cyanide concentrations (0.5?3000 ppm).
The Cynoprobe uses an amperometric technique to accurately and reliably measure the cyanide concentration in a pulp
medium. The cynoprobe?s fast and reliable measurements allow for rapid detection of changes in cyanide concentration. This
results in a very cost-effective cyanide measurement solution. This paper presents the success of the Cynoprobe instrument in
terms of bridging the ?Innovation Chasm?.
